*Von Wagner & Mr. Stone are interrupted in the locker room by Tony D’Angelo & Stacks…Tony challenges Wagner, who declines (taking Stone’s advice not to let his anger get the best of him)…but a little more sarcastic talk from Tony & Stacks is all it takes for Wagner to lose his cool & accept a fight.

*Dabba-Katio promo…Apollo Crews may have been the man who helped bring him into this business, but he will be the one to take Apollo out of it.

*Stevie Turner vignette…she says that Lyra Valkyria is very talented, but eventually she’ll run into Stevie & that’s where her good fortune will end.
